Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser:

I've only been using this product for a few days now, and the lovely lady at the counter gave me several samples to pair with my new Clarisonic. My skin has never felt smoother. The smell isn't that great and the taste is even worse, but my skin is what's most important. It doesn't really remove eye makeup that well, especially Prestigious brands like Tarte/Urban Decay, but it does remove my foundation and concealer. It's a little pricey, but worth it. :)

              Best facial cleanser ever!

              By Mary

              from West Virginia

              Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser:

              This was recommended to me by a consultant at ulta. I am so glad I bought it because it is the best facial cleanser I have ever used. My breakouts have cleared up significantly and it's only been about a week. All the cleansers before I guess we're not cleaning my fave entirely, but this one does everything. My skin has never looked so healthy. Looking forward to using their other products!

                  A:

                  purity made simple does contain coconut alcohol. while philosophy products are thoughtfully designed with quality ingredients for the benefit of all skin types, we recognize that personal skin care concerns may arise and allergies do exist. in order to honor your best interest, we ask that you consult your doctor or allergist regarding any product you wish to add to your routine.

              • Q:

                I have combination skin, always breakout in my t-zone. So far nothings seems to keep my random breakouts away. I'll try a new face wash and it seems to work at first and then weeks later my breakouts are back again. Does this cleanser work for combination skin? And will it keep my breakouts away for good?

              • Q:

                it says use "end of each day *or* at the beginning of each morning"-- is it not recommended to use this product twice daily? I would like to start using this once my clarisonic cleanser runs out but want to make sure it's fine to use morning and night.

You may prefer Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser, which is oil-free and formulated with 1% salicylic acid to combat breakouts without causing irritation:
